Pets of the Week March 5, 2012

Yes, of course she’s housetrained —she’ll sit on command too — but when you’re as wholesome and pleasing as the girl next door, those are minor accomplishments! Our small, beautifully mannered American Staffordshire Lou Anne is gently refined and affectionately civilized; she responds perfectly to your praise, more delicious to her than any treat. Lou Anne, a 6 year old little lady — healthy, cordial and intelligent — and looking lovely in her black and white coat. The kind soul who lost her will never stop missing her. Lou Anne’s delightfully fun with kids and great with other dogs and cats too; her niceness is as real as it is trustworthy. Come meet this smiling champion of the heart; she’ll make your family joyfully complete, and bring her carefully polished “company” manners, too.

He’s a gentleman so replete with Southern hospitality he comes with second helpings of himself — and 3rd and 4ths, too! Our gentle orange Big Boy’s so large he’s like the Louisiana Purchase, a vast territory of friendship, massively loving and infinitely delightful, ready to annex himself to that special person who values the beauty of a companion who’s waistline-challenged. At 7 years old Big Boy’s health is just fine, thank you, he eats special food to maintain his present figure; he was turned in by his owner and is looking for a home with grownups who’ll pet to him to hear his capacious purr; cats, big kids and mannerly dogs are fine too. Hold him in your lap and admire his pleasing girth and his clean, carefully groomed coat, then put him down and watch him drag his pillow around and hide under it like he’s a turtle with a shell. Big Boy’s just entertaining himself; he’s not shy at all, and he’s much cozier than a turtle. Come enjoy a buffet of friendship named Big Boy; you won’t find a more sincere sidekick anywhere, or more immeasurable fun.
